    Hi folks!
    this summer I will build my second guitar and I've seen alot how people do scarfjoint fannedfret but mine will be with the regular telecaster/fenderstyle headstock, to get the fretboard not sticking out beyond the nut do I just drumsand the bevel at an angle or is it more complicated? Hope you understand what I mean.

    Kind regards
    Patrik

    Hi there, lookin good! I don't think you will have an issue as long as you get your angle proper. I'd hog away a good amount first on the spindle sander and then finish off with sandpaper wrapped around a dowel to get it just right. You may also want to consider that Fender guitars generally have a small lip of fretboard showing on the other side of the nut.

    just cut the bulk off with a bandsaw/handsaw, then set a guide up on the spindle sander about 1-2mm wider than your final thickness. it should be pretty easy for you to just eyeball the correct angle
